You know what time it is. Time for Luann de Lesseps’ apology tour, circa January 2018. Right on the heels of her Palm Beach arrest, the Real Housewives Of New York are left picking up the pieces (and the pettiness) of the tabloid drama unfolding before them. And you know, it’s kind of nice to see how the cast (with the exception of Tinsley Mortimer) closes ranks to support Luann, despite their trivial issues. It’s kind of like sisters who fight to the death behind closed doors but present a united front when one of them is attacked by an outsider. Or it’s mobster mentality. Either way, I’m down with it!
Two weeks after Luann’s arrest, she’s in rehab and the rest of the Real Housewives of New York ladies are calling each other to get their stories straight. Was Luann drunk? Um…yup. Did she hit a cop? That would be an affirmative. But surely she didn’t break out of handcuffs and attempt to escape the vehicle?!? Ah, yes. Yes, she did! Indeed, the former countess decided to throw our dear Dorinda Medley a bone and help erase the memory of Bethenny Frankel accusing her of being a drunk once and for all. Because Now poor Lu holds that official title. So says the judge, at least.
Ramona Singertold Bethenny that she “doesn’t support other women” in that instantly iconic phone call while she was walking her dog. Carole Radziwillhas been putting Bethenny in her place episode after episode. Bethenny and Luann will have to answer some tough questions when that reunion comes around.
There are some scenes from Real Housewives of New York that have become so iconic over the years, we practically have them memorized – Bethenny Frankel screaming “GO TO SLEEP!” on Scary Island, the infamous Brooklyn Bridge Beatdown, Dorinda Medley’sClip! Clip! tirade in the Bronx, and Luann de Lesseps falling in those Mexican bushes. But this week gave us our newest save-to-permanent-file moment: Ramona Singer on a Manhattan street reading Bethenny for filth. Now, I don’t know if Martin Scorsese is really watching Vanderpump Rules like Lala says, but he might have shot this scene. Seriously: It. Is. EVERYTHING.
Before we take to the streets, we must revisit the murder mystery Berkshires dinner at which Bethenny and Carole Radziwill are tearing into one another. There’s so much talking and half-running away and coming back again, it’s impossible to capture every moment. But here’s the gist: Bethenny called Adam “an operator” and Luann “a loser.” Carole claims she never knew about the Houston incident, specifically, but did know that Bethenny always thought Adam was a little shifty. It turns out, so does Luann! She’s still holding on to the fact that Adam left her niece for Carole three years ago – in the Countess’s pure white kitchen of all places!! <clutches pearls>
Even though most of the Real Housewives of New Yorkcast members are skeptical of Sonja Morgan’sprowess as a businesswoman, she actually has another fashion line. No, it’s not in the works. It actually exists and has products that are available right now.
What’s next? Sonja has her own line of shoes.
Bravo’s The LookBook reports that Sonja’s shoe line is a collaboration with a New York City-based shoe brand called French Sole. The line consists mostly of flat shoes like loafers and ballet flats.
Happy Tuesday! Let’s take a peek at what the reality stars have been up to in our new photo roundup. The Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwilllooked like she was having the time of her life at the 2018 American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala. Her co-star Bethenny Frankel was also in good spirits as she attended the 70th Annual Parsons Benefit.
Scheana Marie and her Vanderpump Rules sidekick Billie Lee hung out together at a Victoria’s Secret event in L.A. Scheana was also hanging in Vegas.
Kris Jenner was spotted with her boyfriend Corey Gamble at the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix. Check out these and more hot pics in the gallery below!
What do you think of Carole Radziwill’s blue dress? What about Bethenny’s look?
Of course she talked about the Beverly Hills reunion, but she was also asked to weigh in on the Bethenny Frankelvs. Carole Radziwill feud. Kyle has been friends with Bethenny for over 25 years, so she does have a lot of insight when it comes to the Skinnygirl founder.
What happens in the Berkshires rarely ever stays in the Berkshires. In fact, it usually drives major storylines for the remainder of the season on the Real Housewives of New York. Is it something in the water? Is Dorinda Medley’s house built on a goddamn pet cemetery? Whatever the case may be, this year it’s Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill who decide to celebrate their very own Festivus early by airing their grievances on the Berkshires annual trip. And they decide to do it in full costume because…it’s a murder mystery party, ya’ll! So, yeah – it’s nuts. Therefore, it’s incredible.
We begin with Dorinda making it nice. While she shops for quiches and cakes, Bethenny’s assistants pack her bags with pajamas and pepper spray. Carole and Ramona Singer show up first – they’re staying an extra night to behold the Christmas wonderland that Dorinda has erected in literally every corner and crevice of Blue Stone Manor. While they sip cocktails next to a thousand stuffed Santas, Sonja Morgan is back in the city getting a facial and free gossip from her facialist. She’s also making claims about where her missing animals have recently gone. “I gave kitty away to a nice gay man,” sighs Sonja, who moves on to discussing how one must douche between same-day sexual partners. Tinsley Mortimer, take note: This is your future calling, and it’s bleak. Two roads diverged in the wood, and Sonja took the one to Bellevue. You in danger, girl!!
